"Although this is not mentioned in the text, Mr. Stevens served in the Artillery in France, and was subsequently seconded to the Air Ministry where he organized a Falconry unit to intercept outgoing enemy carrier pigeons; later on, in peace time, he was dug out from his rural retreat to clear airfields of flocks of seagulls, plover and other large birds." A record of the author's life "in a wild and remote country district in England." Includes plenty of falconry and even a search for the Gyrfalcon on holiday in Iceland.
